Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Martin Luther King, Jr. Malcolm X -Son and Grandson of Baptist preachers in Georgia-Attended segregated public schools in Georgia-Received B.A. from Morehouse College-Attended 3 Years of Crozer Theological Seminary-Preached nonviolence, love for all people, and integration-Wanted integration and equality, not black dominance-Goal that someday people would be judged for who they are "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." One cannot fight a fire with fire, and if the world workedon an eye for an eye, soon everyone would be blind. "Faith is taking the first step, even if you can't see thewhole staircase."There won't always be a guaranteed end to what youstart. but there is a guarantee that you will have tostart it to find your own end. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an incredible leader,capable of uniting a large number of people undera common interest. His methods of peaceful protesthave set the gold standard for rebellions of races and creeds in America, and he was the single most influential man in the Civil Rights Movement. Without him, the movementnever would have taken off. "I submit that an individual who breaks alaw his conscience tells him is unjust,and willingly takes the consequence of imprisonment in order to arouse theconscience of the community over itsinjustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law."Sometimes, laws must be broken to callattention to their injustice, and this must happen to keep society running. -Born Malcolm Little in Nebraska-Attended Pleasant GroveElementary, West Jr. High and MasonHigh in Mason, MI-Placed in foster care 1939-Father killed 1931-Dodges draft 1943; becomes knownunderground Harlem crook-1946- sentenced to 8-10 yr in prison-Converts to Nation of Islam in prison "Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give youequality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you takeit."Peaceful protest doesn't work. Negotiations don't getlistened to. Sometimes the only option is to take yourfreedom by force. "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today."Without some sort of plan now, you won't have control in the future. You'll be powerless. "I don't even call it violence when it's self defense. I callit intelligence."Sometimes, it comes down to you or them, and you haveto protect yourself, well, "by any means necessary" Malcolm X, in his hostile and violent ways, was a role model for the faction of the black community that wasn't going to put up with white violence any more and had decided to lash back in revenge. Hislegacy of a more militant, take the freedom by forcegroup cements his position as a leader somewhatless effective than his peaceful contemporary, MLKJ,but his ultimate goal of the black man's freedom wasreached by the same ends, and not by the militancy Malcolm thought needful.
